Hyper convergence can be done only with software. It includes application deployment and management. Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions unveils Industry’s First Production-Ready Open Source Hyper Converged Infrastructure which is designed exclusively for the remote sites and edge deployments. The challenge that many of the organizations come across is the absence of on-site staff and even technologies in remote office locations. This open source platform that Red Hat offers can eliminate this challenge by integrating compute and storage together on a single server. This can support those organizations whose services are spread across different regions and which require technology to develop. Consider the banking, energy or retail industries; they need to offer the same infrastructure services in remote and branch offices as they run in their datacenter. The Red Hat facilitates the required technologies with the help of components like Red Hat virtualization, Gluster storage, Enterprise Linux and the Ansible by Red Hat.
“Our customers have been looking for a solution to meet infrastructure needs across their entire organization - not just in the main office - but proprietary solutions previously appeared to be the only viable option for remote and edge installations. With Red Hat Hyper converged Infrastructure, customers can now provision compute and storage resources for remote sites to run local instances of applications with the same proficiency as in-office operations” says Ranga Rangachari, vice president and general manager, Storage, Red Hat.
